Now reaction let's bring in a purveyor Bernard Goldberg dot com -- in Miami this evening Bernie Goldberg worked with Dan rather -- fifteen years so what say you.
I'm not sure bill why you have a media analyst -- to talk about this I think you need to psychiatrist because what Dan said is delusional and it's delusional.
Its number one his his problem and his dispute.
It is not with conservative critics of the media.
It's what the American people because poll after poll after poll.
Show that large numbers of Republicans and Democrats.
Of conservatives and liberals.
Believe the media has a liberal bias that's number one.
Number two when I was writing my book a slobbering love affair right after the last presidential election.
I quote several prominent and highly well respected.
Journalists in Washington.
And one of them a felony and Charlie Cook who is.
I'm very well respected political journalists said.
Let's face it is there a democratic and a liberal bias in the media.
Of course there is I think I think you can say that the media had a finger more than a finger.
On the democratic side.
Did this is this is simply ridiculous and delusional and the fact you gave -- the talking points more than prove the point.
That there is an an abundance of liberalism in the media.
And they don't keep it to themselves.
Not anymore I mean is a book out on Walter Cronkite now and and mr.
Cronkite very very left wing guy much further left -- I think you.
Awfully was I certainly didn't I knew it was liberal but I didn't think he was off the chart left which yes writing this book documents that and Dan rather took over and rather.
The contract tried to hide it I mean it'll come out little ways but he did it -- he was respectful to authority went along with the Vietnam warning beginning wasn't some crank.
Rather -- did you know toward the liberal precincts I know he killed a couple stories -- mine that didn't reflect.
His political correct vision one on gays in Massachusetts he killed.
And -- a couple of others but breath at this point I think we've established the fact and we don't have to really debated any longer.
That what you just that is absolutely true so gonna let you gonna give you want.
Can -- give you one example because you mention the Vietnam market this is something that I've written about and and it needs to get a lot more play than it's gotten so far.
At the end of August of 2004 when John Kerry was getting shellacked by the Vietnam veterans for truth.
The swift boat veterans -- for truth.
Over his war record in Vietnam Dan rather gave an interview to a national news magazine broadcasting and cable in which she said.
In the end what difference does it make what one candidate or the other.
Did or didn't do during the Vietnam war in some ways that war is as distant.
As -- napoleonic campaigns.
One week later.
Not one year later not one month later one.
Week later the same Dan rather is on sixty minutes Wednesday on CBS telling us about what a candidate did.
Or didn't do during the Vietnam War.
So the -- Am gonna -- -- out -- was President Bush.
And that was as National Guard service.
So he's said look it -- so -- is always there makes a big deal about the bush right.
Exactly exactly -- well now you've got -- Okay now he's eighty years old.
He wouldn't come on this program because he may be eighty bodies still -- is that I when he hit him with the three things the university Connecticut NBC -- -- -- -- right.
-- -- -- -- -- But the question now becomes how much of an advantage is it 5%.
For Barack Obama because the media.
And I'm glad I'm including entertainment industry in that as well because you're gonna get run media and you're gonna get entertainment -- you gonna get all that into the pro Obama camp.
How much how much -- -- -- Okay the last time US -- had a month ago.
I said I -- think it matter very much but since then I've I'm having second thoughts.
Since we spoke last the Washington Post runs that page one story about what -- -- right.
-- what Mitt Romney did yet fifty years ago on high school right.
The New York Times turns a page one story about and -- a lead hobby of writing these expensive horses and jumping you know hurdles and all that.
Now these stories.
It's not because simply because there in the New York Times these stories filter out to the networks and then -- filter out to the entertainment shows in late night comedians and all that.
And they filter into the national consciousness.
And that's a result of starting to think.
And I didn't last but I'm -- to think that people who aren't familiar with the issues who don't know the Romney's.
They start to say well he's he's but this is the guy who bashed a gay kid in high school and she's this elitist.
Who writes these expensive horses and they could affect how they see these people.
And in a tight race can have.
No I think it does -- it -- you're gonna deliver a few votes I don't you know it just depends how tight it is all right Bernie go.
